A one-page letter written by Rick Allen to his friend Pete Hartley in vintage ballpoint pen. Pete Hartley designed Rick Allen's paddle system, while Rick was still in the hospital, making this letter that much more special. Rick Allen asks how Pete is doing, before sending his address in Holland. Rick Allen signs the letter “Richard + Miriam” and adds a very cool self-portrait. From the collection of Miriam Barendsen. Partial proceeds from the sale of this lot will be donated to the Baladi Foundation, an animal rescue organization that works with and supports animal rescuers in Egypt to save homeless cats and dogs who are abused or are in need of immediate help on the streets. The foundation was co-founded by Miriam Barendsen, Rick Allen's girlfriend throughout the 1980's, who was in the car with Rick when the tragic accident occurred resulting in the amputation of his arm. The funds raised by the Baladi Foundation are used in many ways to help the vulnerable Baladi animals in Egypt. The Baladi Foundation is ambitious, sets goals! To ease the pain caused by incredible suffering of the kindest dogs who have a DNA going back for 15,000 years in history! The Baladi! Dogs help us humans, now it is time to help them! For more information on the Baladi Foundation please visit: Very good condition. Measures 8 x 10. Comes with a Gotta Have Rock & Roll Certificate of Authenticity.
